Listen to Your Heart

"When you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent."1

Melody Beattie in The Language of Letting Go emphasized the importance of contemplating what is on your mind first thing when you wake up in the morning. What is it in that half-asleep, half-awake place? Are you troubled about something? Is there some responsibility you have neglected that is bothering you? Is it a goal you've been planning on starting but keep putting off? Is it an unhealthy relationship you are in and you know you need to get out of it? Is it a destructive habit or sin that you feel convicted about?

What is on your mind at this time is coming from your inner self, your unconscious mind, or it may be coming from God's Spirit. It may be revealing a truth you need to deal with. Listen to that inner voice—the voice of your heart—and do what you know you need to do about that issue that is troubling or challenging you. Don't put it off. Take care of it each day.

We’re not talking about compulsive obsessive behavior but learning to discern the voice of one’s inner self and that of the leading of God’s Spirit.

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, when my inner self or Your Holy Spirit reminds me of something I need to fix, start, put right, or to do today, please help me to write it down so I don't forget, and then do something about it that day. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus's name, amen."

1. Psalm 4:4 (NIV).
